Nicol can’t believe Chelsea signed £39m player after watching his disastrous performance

Wright Chelsea's Potter

Pundit Steve Nicol questioned severely on why one player was even at Chelsea after his performance in yesterday’s loss to Wolves.

He told ESPN that he believed whoever made the decision to sign Axel Disasi over the summer. They proved they were not very good at their job of recruitment.

Disasi’s name was there as one of the two centre-backs who made up what looked on paper like one of the stronger back fours seen at Chelsea in recent weeks

However, he and his teammates were second best by a long way against a Wolves side, who were led by Pedro Neto and Matheus Cunha.

The latter scored a hat-trick at Stamford Bridge, while the other goal in the 4-2 defeat went down as an own goal on Disasi.

The 25-year-old has endured a rough start to his time at the club, with him coming in for plenty of criticism since his move for £39m over the summer.

Nicol can’t believe this disastrous performance from Chelsea player:

Now, Nicol has claimed that he couldn’t explain why anyone at Chelsea thought it was a good idea to sign him when they did.

He said: “Disasi. Who bought him? You’ve got Silva who’s 39. This is a bad team. Whoever picked these players has shown that they’re in the wrong job.”

It is likely that the ideal first choice central defensive partnership in the long term are currently not fit and available for Mauricio Pochettino. Moreover, he is seeing the pressure mount on him and his position.

Wesley Fofana has been out for the entire season, while Levi Colwill’s absence this season has normally resulted in the Blues conceding four goals, something which has now occurred four times this season.
